	In rc.d/mysqld, pidfile is set before load_rc_config is called.
	If mysqld_datadir is set, this leads to an inconsistent setting
	of pidfile and so mysqld fails.
	I must admit I don't understand the whole else block at the end
	and why load_rc_config is not called at the beginning of the script.
	install databases/mysql5-server, set mysql_datadir in rc.conf
	Move up load_rc_config to beginning of script?
	move assignement to pidfile down after load_rc_config call?
